Sony's PlayStation VR virtual reality headset doesn't just work with the PlayStation 4, enterprising users have discovered.
As it turns out, the headset can function as an ordinary head-mounted display when plugged into a non-PS4 video source - with no additional hardware or mods.
Connecting the unit's HDMI cable to an Xbox One - or a Wii U, or even a PC, according to some reports - will place the console's video output in front of the wearer's eyes.
According to reports, the effect is much like looking at a giant television (or using one of Sony's other, non-VR head-mounted displays).
Head tracking doesn't work without the PS4 driving the device - the display remains static and anchored to users' faces - but the fact that the hardware is able to parse a standard, "flat" video signal is curious in and of itself.
